    I love Jeremy. Good for him. I still don't understand why Patrick doesn't do SOI. It can't be because they don't ask him......

    Nothing on the official website yet, but Weaver/Poje's twitter --

    http://twitter.com/#!/WeaverPoje

    I was wondering what other pairs/dance team they'd sign on to the tour...

    I've been hoping they might be added as well. We'll soon see.

    I bought really good tickets this year (thinking that you never know how much longer Kurt will be touring), and the cast (already great) just keeps getting better. :D

    Me too. This is one of those times I wish I were Canadian or had the money to travel up there for one of the shows.

    I was already going to buy tickets, but this just made my day. :D I'm really looking forward to V/M and W/P doing group numbers together. That should be awesome.

    I wonder if they track incremental ticket sales after each announcement.

    Seattle's ballet company always has early renewals, with just a few highlights scheduled for the next season. They can tell by how many people renew before the full season is announced who is there to see the company, either no matter what they perform or assuming that there won't be major changes.

    I sent SOI and email asking them to bring Patrick Chan as a guest skater. He will be in Toronto on May 6th for a function and our show is May 4th.
    Last year we were shortchanged when the WC ended up on the same day as SOI.

    From Tina at Kurtlist just now:

    "Oh wow. They just announced that the cast includes Virtue & Moir, Weaver & Poje, Davis & White, Jeremy Abbott and Ashley Wagner! So we get three dance teams in Canada! And the top US skaters in 3 disciplines. Quite the lineup! I honestly don't know why the US tour doesn't just move to after Worlds...they clearly would have a bigger pick of skaters if they did!

    Tina"

    WOW, indeed.

    Too bad they aren't coming West, but at least we get Weaver and Poje.

    Just to be clear, the SOI Canada website mentions D/W at three shows only - Toronto, Hamilton and London, so they seem to be guest performers.

    I'm hoping we get one of the top Japanese skaters in the west.

    :D:D:D Seriously, Davis and White!?!! Just when I thought the cast list couldn't get any better. I can't believe that I almost didn't buy tickets this year.

    I kind of wish the Kerrs were on the Canadian tour but doesn't look like there will be room for them.

    The Canadian tour is sooooo much better (at least cast-wise) than the USA tour.

    and Ottawa either?

    With that lineup they could get huge crowds!

    They could take Davis/White's spot west of Ontario, or at least between Ontario and BC, where the Japanese skaters tend to join.
